               D

    everybody's outside, so come on, let's ride

               Em

    to the builder's yard around the corner,

                            D

    the gang's all here and it's time for us to do what we wanna.

 

   Em

2.      There's a house with a roof that leaks,

               D

    it's an urgent job and it could take us weeks.

                  Em

    There's Dizzy, Lofty and Roley, too,

               D

    and Wendy always knows just what to do.

 

             Em

3. And there's no job too big or small,

                D

    with Scoop and Muck we can do it all.

      Em

    Metal, brick or wood, it's all good,

                        D

    and we can always send in the tractor.

 

                    Em                                            D

A little bit of timber and a saw, a little bit of fixing, that's for sure,

                    Em                                                   D

a little bit of digging up the roads, a little bit of moving heavy loads.

                   Em                                             D

A little bit of tiling on the roof, a little bit of making waterproof,

                    Em                                                          D

a little bit of concrete mixed with sand, a little bit of Bob, the builder man.

4. Jump up and down and move it all around,

              D

    mix it up to the sound, dig a hole in the ground.

              Em

    Take one step left and one step right,

      D

    one to the front and one to the side.

      Em

    Clap your hands once, and clap your hands twice,

                  D

    and if it looks like this, then you're doin' it right.

3. There's Roley, Lofty, Scoop, Muck and Dizzy,

    And we can fix it, yes, we can,

                    D

    with the team, and Bob The Builder man.
